Degrees at CPTC

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Manufacturing Operations (BASMO) degree is awarded for completion of at least 90 credits of appropriate 300 and 400 level coursework. An applied associate degree (AAS or equivalent) in a manufacturing-related field with the required distribution of academic core coursework in written communication, quantitative reasoning, social science, and humanities is a prerequisite for program admission. Other program admission requirements can be found online.

The Associate of Applied Technology (AAT) degree is awarded to students who complete programs that are 90 credits or more in length and include a core of 15 college-level academic credits. The bulk of the credits are in specific career/technical fields. The required general education courses in communication, quantitative reasoning and social sciences are designed to prepare students for work.

The Associate in Applied Science - Transfer (AAS-T) degree is also a workforce degree with a core of general education courses. The difference is that the AAS-T degree requires a minimum of 20 credits of general education courses commonly accepted in transfer, including a minimum of five credits in English composition, five credits in quantitative reasoning, and five in social science, humanities, or science. 

The Associate in Pre-Nursing (DTA/MRP) and the Associate of Applied Technology (DTA/MRP) are degrees awarded by Clover Park Technical College to students who have completed specified curriculum with the intent of transferring to one of Washington’s four-year institutions. Direct Transfer Agreement/Major Related Pathway (DTA/MRP) degrees prepare students with general education requirements necessary to pursue further study. They do not alter the admission criteria established by the baccalaureate institution, nor do they guarantee admission to the institution. Students should contact an advisor at the potential transfer institution regarding their interests and specific course choices.
